    Your profile

      • Responsibility-taking — You go outside your area of responsibility to solve problems that affect the organization. You also have a great sense of responsibility for your own tasks and ensure that they are completed.
      • Results oriented — Output is everything in a startup, so you like to identify, set and work towards your own goals that are challenging, realistic, clear and in line with the organization's goals.
